An Alameda County "Children's Hospital Special Tax Initiative," Measure B ballot question was on the February 5, 2008 countywide ballot in Alameda County, where it was defeated.

If Measure B had been approved, it would have resulted in the levy of a parcel tax on properties in the county to support the Children's Hospital in Oakland.

Measure A, a different parcel tax measure that also would have generated revenue through a parcel tax levy to support the hospital, was on the same ballot. It also failed.

A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval.
